If you don't do pictures because they are too big, then you should consider resizing them. Adding pictures to Brickshelf which are larger than 800x600 puts an unnecessary load on their free service and results in slow loading times, which makes people click away from pictures of your creations prematurely. This is a shame because you usually biuld some great models.

I think the trailer needs to be longer,do you plan on motorizing the steering?

Yes U are right. Also the trailer could be extended so it can be even longer.

do you plan on motorizing the steering?

No, I am not. Because it isn't easy, and this way it steers 'normally' like the real trailer would do . Also if i link the steering from the front it will be indirect, its a big problem. So i chose this idea

Could you not use another motor on the same channel as the steering of the truck?

yes but then u get the same problem as i have now. That is that if u are reversing that u get the back wheels the wrong direction. but mayby i can do a servo motor and that u can switch directions.
